Dear Colleague,

Within the ISVC09 – 5th International Symposium on Visual Computing
(http://www.isvc.net), to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, in November 30
- December 2, 2009, we are organizing the Special Track “ST6 - Computational
Bioimaging” (http://www.isvc.net/ST6.pdf).

The main goal of the Special Track “ST6 - Computational Bioimaging” is to
bring together researchers working in the related fields of Image
Acquisition, Segmentation, Registration, Tracking, Matching, Shape
Reconstruction, Motion and Deformation Analysis, Medical Imaging, Software
Development, Grid, Parallel and High Performing Computing, to discuss and
share ideas that will lead us to set the major lines of development for the
near future.
Therefore, the Special Track “ST6 - Computational Bioimaging” will gather
researchers representing the various fields of Computational Vision,
Computational Mechanics, Mathematics, Statistics, and Biomedical Imaging.
This track intends to contribute more realistic computational models
extracted from images of living organisms and attempts to establish a bridge
between practitioners and researchers from these diverse fields.

Due to your research activities in those fields, we would like to invite you
to submit your work and participate in the Special Track “ST6 -
Computational Bioimaging”.


The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas:

- Image Processing and Analysis for Computational Bioimaging;
- Segmentation, Reconstruction, Tracking and Motion Analyse in Biomedical
- Biomedical Signal and Image Acquisition and Processing;
- Computer Aided Diagnosis, Surgery, Therapy, Treatment and Telemedicine
- Software Development for Computational Bioimaging;
- Grid and High Performance Computing for Computational Bioimaging.


Instructions for authors are available in the website of ISVC'09
Authors should submit electronically their contributions through the website
of ISVC'09 (http://www.isvc.net), selecting the Special Track “ST6 -
Computational Bioimaging”.
Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings which will be
published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
